Electronics manufacturing to grow 10.2 percent this year in North America after 2010 market turnaround


BANNOCKBURN, Ill., 28 Oct. 2011. The global market for electronics manufacturing returned to growth in 2010 after economic setbacks in 2009, and should grow this year by 14.8 percent throughout the world, and 10.2 percent in North America, according to a study by the IPC -- Association Connecting Electronics Industries -- in Bannockburn, Ill.

The study, entitled 2010-2011 Analysis and Forecast for the EMS Industry, includes forecasts through 2015 from New Venture Research Corp. (NVR) in Nevada City, Calif.

The study reveals a reduction in spending on automated assembly equipment this year compared to 2010, but an increase in capital equipment spending overall in North America.



The study shows actual 2010 and estimated 2011 spending on specific equipment types by the aggregated sample of participating electronics manufacturing companies.

The study includes general business metrics on the sample of 90 electronics manufacturing operations that participated in the annual survey by region, including North America, Europe, and Asia.

The study also examines trends in market size, sources of revenue, revenue per employee, services offered, markets served, customer relationship metrics, manufacturing technology, and spending on equipment and materials. In addition, the study shows the breakdown of sales to eight major end markets by region.
